Here are some great ways to pamper your mum this Mother's Day, and make her feel like the queen she truly is!
Mum deserves to be celebrated all year round, but she merits that extra-special pampering on Mother’s Day. Sure, you might be planning the usual flowers and gift cards, but this May 14, how about changing it up a bit?
With great deals everywhere in Singapore, there’s no difficulty in finding the perfect way to pamper your mum—without breaking the bank! Here are some great ways you can splurge a little on the queen of the house.
1) Get her a complimentary massage
Being a mum is hard on the muscles—what about a complimentary massage to relax her? Compass One has just adopted the Singapore Association for the Visually Handicapped as its beneficiary. From 1-14 May, all shoppers who spend a minimum of S$30 in a single receipt can get a free 15-min back massage from SAVH’s talented masseurs.
The best part? Mum can have some retail therapy and pampering for her tired muscles. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!
2) Splurge on a spa day
Of course, sometimes a simple massage isn’t enough for the best mum in the world. That’s when you can turn to the Mother’s Day promotions on beauty booking service Vaniday.
From facials and scrubs to saunas and mineral pools, your mum can get the rare chance to be taken care of at Calla Spa. Or maybe she loves a splash of colour on her nails—Pink Haven‘s 1-for-1 mani-pedi promo has got both you and her covered.
Amber Beila is also offering a range of more exotic options like body slimming cavitation and aromatherapy facial treatment — free skin care travel kit included. By the end of Mother’s Day, your mum should have luxuriated her fill in full-body relaxation, pampered head to toe.
3) Take her on a cable car ride
For a family-friendly outing, there’s no better place than Sentosa. Pamper your adventurous mum with thrilling heights and splendid views on the Singapore Cable Car!
From 1 May to 31 May, all mums will receive a 50% ticket discount with every child ticket purchased. Tickets to visit the Merlion and the award-winning Wings of Time will also be at half-price. If your mum has been looking for a dose of beach fun and excitement, this is definitely the time to spoil her.
4) Gift her something that sparkles
Mums are often found in practical outfits (it’s hard to dress up when you are this busy). But she’ll definitely appreciate being pampered with a dash of glamour.
Citigems’ latest collection, the Lush Love collection, makes a great gift for mums who love flowers and jewellery. The collection is inspired by lush nature so reminiscent of a mother’s abundant love, comprising gorgeous flower-gems like the Tuscany Sunflower Fields Diamond and White Gold Pendant from S$458, and the Netherlands Spring Tulips Diamond and Coloured Gem White/Rose Gold pendants from S$148.
Jewellery is a woman’s best friend, after all—Mother’s Day is definitely the time to give your mum something that sparkles as much as she does. Angel Republic is gifting mums with earrings worth $59.90 with every $100 spent, and Pandora is offering mums an exclusive jewellery box, free with any $300 purchase.
5) Treat her tired feet
All mums need a pair of shoes (or five) that are classy and comfy at once. To find those magical shoes that will turn your mum into Cinderella, it’s worth having a search through eco-friendly Brazilian shoewear label Melissa.
The newest Spring/Summer 2017: Mash Up collection, as the name suggests, mashes up different styles and ages. Whether your mum needs some trendy flatforms or classic sandals to complete her shoe collection, they’ve probably got your back. One major plus is that they cater to tweens and tots as well — treat yourself to some shoes as well and go matchy-matchy with your mum.
6) Get her a lifetime supply of great hair
Often it’s the everyday luxuries that matter. Simple things like leaving for work each day with a sleek blowout can make a huge difference in your mum’s life.
If you’re looking for a trusty hair dryer for your mum’s haircare routine, Dyson has released a special Mother’s Day edition of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. In addition to being all pretty in pink, it comes with a complimentary leather travel case and full set of accessories.
7) Surprise her with the newest kitchen gadgets
Our mums can often seem like domestic goddesses, whipping up comfort food and yummy courses without breaking a sweat. If she loves to cook, why not give her more kitchen gadgets to play with?
Some choice options include the Bosch Mum5 Creation Line Kitchen machine, currently on sale at $899. This multifunctional machine is able to beat, stir, knead, grate, and more — accomplishing all the most tiring parts of cooking! Your domestic goddess mum might also like the Bosch MultiTalent Food Processor on promotion at $449. This is a power-packed gadget with more than 50 functions for chopping, slicing, extracting juice and so on.
8) Gift her some youth elixirs
To us, our mums seem to look forever young. But sometimes mum needs to be pampered with a bit of reassurance about her looks, and some skin rejuvenation potions will do just the trick.
For a powerful draught of youth, look no further than the AVALON Stemcell Beauty Drink, on sale at $44.90 It contains stem cells extracted from Young Orchids, and is purportedly able to rejuvenate the skin and combat the ageing process. Another way to rejuvenate your mum’s skin is the SK-II Sakura Facial Treatment Essence, currently on sale at half-price.
Mums will also love this simple and fuss-free option to skincare — the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask Lavender. This limited edition scented mask contains calming lavender, not only moisturizing the skin but enhancing your mum’s beauty sleep.
Great savings alert! If you get these gifts through online marketplace Shopee as a first-time user, you’ll get an extra $7 off your purchase with the promo code MUMxTAP, valid from 3 May till 14 May 23:59.
9) Indulge her nostalgia with vintage stuff
Is your mum always reminiscing about her carefree girlhood in 1970s or 80s Singapore? Instead of going to a new restaurant, bring her on a priceless trip down memory lane instead.
You might have to hunt a little, but you can find all sorts of knick-knacks from olden-day Singapore online. @jennifer.lim.526‘s Carousell store has old Kopitiam tea sets, for example, and @ninipocket2015 has rare finds like tikam-tikam, tin toys, and retro superhero posters. Sit down with your mum the rest of the day and tinker with these old-school toys together!
10) Treat her to good food
Chances are, your mum cooks for the family the other 364 days of the year. Mother’s Day is the day when she deserves to sit down and be spoiled by fine dining.
Fill your mum’s heart and tummy with foodie treats from Singapore cafes. The bartenders at PS.Cafe have a special Mother’s Day $19 menu of mimosas in temptingly fruity flavours: Fresh Cucumber and Mint, Fruity Yuzu & Pandan, Spicy Pepper, Chili & Grapefruit. This will be available all-day on 14th May.
For more hearty fare, Montreux Jazz Cafe is offering a free-flow of cheese and meat at their live stations along with their famous Sunday brunch from 11am to 3pm. The best part is that mum won’t need to worry about her tots. With a special kids’ play area and dedicated kids’ entertainers in the cafe, children will be kept busy exploring!
Of if your mum’s tastebuds are more Anglophile, head down to Oxwell & Co to enjoy a mouthwatering Sunday Roast. Each roast, available from 12-4pm, comes with a free glass of Prosecco, and a complimentary choice of English desserts like warm toffee sponge and lemon posset.
Pad Thai-loving mums are also in luck. Over at One Raffles Place, your mum can enjoy one free Main Dish at Gin Khao, such as pineapple fried rice and stir-fried squid.
11) Get her on the front page
All mums are the most important person in the world to their kids. To show her this in a uniquely Singaporean way, there’s nothing like proclaiming it on the front page of The Straits Times.
SPH’s Personalised Print service allows you to order customized copies of the day’s newspapers for special occasions. You can insert personal messages on the front page, get the paper delivered in style with champagne and roses. It’s a brilliant way to tell your mum how your world revolves around her!
At the end of the day, don’t forget that your mum will probably love anything you gift her — because it comes from her beloved children’s heart.
